The Avant Garde'n



We buy and sell furniture, home decor, antiques and CeCe Caldwell Chalk and Clay Paints. We also hold in home Estate Sales. Let us price, stage & sell it!


We opened in January of 2009 in the back half of a building with a bookstore. In June of 2012 we expanded into the remainder of the building when the bookstore we shared space with closed. At the beginning of 2017 we moved to 140 N. 20th St in Ozark, MO almost tripling the size of our store!

We buy and consign everything from full estates to single pieces. We specialize in good quality used upholstered pieces, bedroom pieces, dining room pieces, living room pieces, lamps, pictures and home decor. Our consignment is a 50/50 split and the items must be priced to sell within 60 days. We offer pickup of consignment items for a fee or they may be brought to the store by appointment on Sunday evening or Monday morning. Our outright purchase price varies by item. We also carry new pieces such as several styles of dining room chairs, occasional chairs, mirrors and curtains.

We have a staff of 15 people who work in the store as well as several individuals who help us pick up estates and deliver furniture.

Our motto is “Great things at great prices”. Our goal is customer service that makes you say "WOW". Our passion is making our store feel like home and our customers feel like family.


We are retailers for the following products: CeCe Caldwall's Paints, Howard Restor-A-Finish products, Cheerful Giver Candles and car fresheners, Inis of Ireland Fragrances, and Churchills Coffee.


We offer beginning paint classes monthly for our CeCe Caldwall's Paints. The cost is $35 and you recieve a free quart of paint (a $35 value) plus discounts on all paints and brushes for 6 months following class. We paint sample boards, fabric, glass and metal. You have the opportunity to try a variety of colors, finishes and techniques. See more details and the date of our next class here.


We offer delivery within the city limits of Ozark for $40, the city limits of Springfield or Nixa for $50. If delivery to an area outside of these cities, the fee is $2.50 per loaded mile with a minimum purchase of $50. We can typically deliver 2-3 items for one price. If our trailer is required, a additional fee will be charged on a case by case basis.


We offer a 60 day layaway. We require a 25% deposit of the amount including tax and two equal payments at 30 days and 60 days. We do not offer discounts using layaway. Once the item is moved to our storage facility, the 25% deposit is nonrefundable. Any payments beyond the 25% deposit will only be refunded in store credit if the item is not taken.


We may be biased but we have the best team here to help you when you stop in at The Avant Garde'n!
